About the Author
HODA BESHIR was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. From the age of two, she enjoyed story time with her mother. To her parents' amazement, at three years old, Hoda began to retell the stories of the prophets, may Allah's peace be upon them, with expression and passion, reciting the relevant Qur'anic verses within the stories. In elementary school, she discovered her love for creative writing. Throughout her life, she has pursued this hobby through schooling, workshops, and university courses, as well as in her spare time.
Through her work as a counselor at summer day camps and as a teacher at the weekend community school, she rediscovered the educational and persuasive tool of storytelling and all its joys for both the listeners and the teller. Hoda has completed a university Honor's Degree in Psychology and a Bachelor's of Education. Upon graduating from Psychology, she was awarded the Governor General's Silver Medal for outstanding achievement. During her university studies, she placed special emphasis on Child Psychology and Children's Literature.
